Our community has always had many moving parts, which extend beyond the community itself.   We help surveyors find jobs in surveying, source equipment for the field and we help our trusted vendors find customers who need their products and services.   Anything which can help a surveyor find what they need while informing the public of a land surveyor's importance is something we attempt to build.   In other words, we've been hard at work putting a fresh face on everything for the New Year.   With that said, our Surveying Jobs Board and the Equipment Hunter websites have been redesigned.  In addition, we have a new Smarketplace Aggregator website to add to the Virtual Mall mix.  Here are a few things we have improved and we are always open to suggestions for what to build next.

Our community will soon turn 15 years old and a question that I am getting more and more is "I no longer work at the company that I worked at when I signed up, so I no longer have that email - what do I do?"

Our new Virtual Mall currently has 5 Levels.   Enter through the parking lot, into the Elevator.  This is a place where Community Commerce can take place...where surveyors can connect with Vendors inside their "Smarket" - or Surveyors Market. Everyday, the latest posts from our Community Marketplace Vendors update inside their Virtual Marketplace stores with deals for Land Surveyors United members.

- Four methods of data collection are supported, GPS/GNSS location, map cursor location, GIS Tracker, point projection using angle and distance.

- Direct export to Dropbox, Google Drive at anywhere location.

- Import point, line and polygon features into layer from CSV, KML or GeoJSON file.

Hello Surveyors,

1198839102?profile=originalWe could really benefit from your help. As our community continues to grow at a rapid rate (currently over 15,600 members globally) and we discuss all kinds of topics related to land surveying, we are starting to need some help with moderation in the location based group forums. While Land Surveyors United forums want to encourage free speech and thought provoking ideas, occasionally abusive people can interrupt our conversations with unnecessary language, bitterness or personal vendettas. Land Surveyors United is seeking out several great moderators. These moderators should be active members of the forums who can view topics and discussion from an unbiased perspective.

 

The most important part of being a group moderator is to build a small community within your group which keeps everyone in your locality up to speed on Surveying laws, protect others from cyber bullying and keep the conversation in action without unnecessary abuse or name calling. Although we have very little of this occurring on the network it is still good practice to have someone in place.

Apply to Become a Local Leader

Moderation involves the following tasks and can be accomplished easily in your spare time:

  • Reporting Surveying News for your area inside your group discussions
  • Inviting your local surveyors to the group and building a micro-community
  • Sharing useful links with your fellow surveyors in your area
  • Adding local surveyor events and projects to your group

Things You Can Do To Your Group as Moderator

  • Stream live Events using Video
  • Add Pages with Resources, Links, Projects and Products
  • Change the Icon and Background For Your Group
  • Promote Companies and Associations Which Your Value Locally
  • Be the first to know about new features coming to Land Surveyors United
  • much much more...

 

Benefits Are Growing Daily! For starters you will have access to this exclusive group for Local Leaders of Surveying and you will get your own @landsurveyorsunited.org email address, 7GB of free space on Skydrive and have your name placed inside our Organization Structure . In the future we hope to award continuing education credits to Local Leaders in the network.

 

Apply to Become a Local Leader

If you are already a real-life local leader for your area such as an Association President or Board Leader, please let us know so that we can promote your status through the group. If you have any questions, please send Justin a message. Thank you for your time and interest in helping to make Land Surveyors United even stronger!
